Review & Giveaway: Happiness is...Peanuts: Snoopy's Adventures

I must agree on this one: Happiness is Peanuts! I love that cartoon. I used to call it Snoopy when I was growing up. Later I didn't know what people were talking about when they said Peanuts. I even named my first dog Snoopy and he was a poodle, not a beagle! So I was thrilled to review this DVD. I want my kids to grow up loving Peanuts as much as I did. (not to mention our cute little neighbor who is a year old looks a little like Charlie Brown...,hehehe). Here's a little bit about the DVD that was released this past Tuesday, June 14!


Is Snoopy really planning on tying the knot? In the Emmy® Award nominated Snoopy’s Getting Married, Charlie Brown, everyone in the Peanuts gang pitches in, in an effort to make preparations for Snoopy’s big wedding day. 

While acting as Peppermint Patty’s watchdog one night, Snoopy meets the girl of his dreams, Genevieve, a beautiful Poodle. Genevieve and Snoopy begin courting and soon after, he proposes. Snoopy asks his brother Spike to be his “best Beagle,” prompting Spike to embark on a long and arduous journey from Needles, California to participate in the event. Charlie Brown takes Snoopy to a tuxedo shop where he is fitted for proper wedding attire, which includes a cane and swanky top hat.  The excitement builds as the big day draws near but Snoopy gets increasingly nervous about leaving his bachelorhood behind.  Will wedding bells ring for Snoopy?

Happiness is…Peanuts™: Snoopy’s Adventures also includes an episode from The Charlie Brown and Snoopy Show, the Daytime Emmy® Award nominated program featuring animated skits based on Peanuts comic strips created by Charles M. Schulz. The episode is comprised of the following three segments:

Ø  Snoopy’s Foot – Snoopy tries to play baseball with his foot in a cast.

Ø  Giant – Snoopy and Woodstock grow a beanstalk and meet up with a giant.

Ø  Rerun – Lucy and Linus’ little brother Rerun, meets a little girl in the supermarket.


 My Take: Boy this really takes me back! I remembered every episode, especially the Snoopy wedding one! I think it's my favorite. He just looked so cute in his little tux! Snoopy is my favorite character so I love that the whole DVD was focused on him! As for the kids I'm not sure they loved it as much as me. They could sit through one episode and then they were off playing. My daughter has asked to see Snoopy again but my son is too into Cars to care that much. That's okay though. I've watched it a few times! =) It's a classic for adults and it always puts a smile on my face.
